Things to Do in Benahavis

Benahavis offers you a lot of opportunities to practice your favorite sport.
Besides the variety of golf courses, here are a few other suggestions. If you like walking the spectacular mountainside, just take whichever dirt track, you will come across some magnificent views, of which the most stunning are the ones at Montemayor Castle, or the ruins of it, where you can see the whole coastline from Marbella to Gibraltar.

And if your thing is free climbing, the “Las Angosturas” gorge at the entrance of the village has more than 60 climbing routes where you can hook up.
Close to the river and next to the Gran Hotel Benahavis you’ll find  the multisports complex of Benahavis, with a swimming pool, tennis and paddle tennis courts, the municipal gym and an exquisite football pitch. These are open all year except the swimming pool which opens from the middle of June until September. The golf driving range is just next to it.
At the entrance of the village on your left, you’ll see the roof of the sports pavilion for all indoor sports, primarily basketball.
And I could not write these lines without mentioning the golf courses on Benahavis territory.
The road up to Benahavis is well used stretch for fans of cycling, as is the Ronda road for the real enthusiasts, and there is plenty of mountain biking to do all around the area.

And a definite must do is taking a tour with Marco of Safari del Sol, breathtaking views and nature’s finest only minutes away from the village. For more info you can visit his site on www.safaridelsol.com or click on the photo below.
